Kevin Durant is reportedly declining his player option for the 2017-18 season with the intention of re -signing with the Warriors . Haynes reported that Durant is expected to ink another two-year contract with a player option on the second year, much like the one he is opting out of this offseason.

Kevin Durant’s summer got a lot more interesting when he suffered what is believed to be a torn Achilles during Game 5 of the NBA Finals, and the injury could impact the amount of money teams are willing to invest in him. However, he may not be in nearly as much contract trouble as some people believe.

Prior to the injury, it was a foregone conclusion that Durant would opt out of the final year of his deal with the Golden State Warriors. There has now been speculation that he could stick with the contract and make $31 million next season while sitting out most — if not all — of the year, but ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski called that a “last resort” on Wednesday.

The Golden State Warriors and two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant agreed to terms on a new one-year contract that includes a player option At the time, Haynes noted the player planned to opt out and "restructure a new deal with the Warriors " because he signed for nearly million less than

Kevin Durant is going to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the former MVP is expected not to pick up his player option this summer, though he still intends to stay with the Golden State Warriors by inking a new contract .

“That’s really only if you couldn’t find any other team to commit to you on a contract,” Wojnarowski said. “If he opts out of the contract and even if he did a short deal with another team, a two-year deal, that starts at $38 million. I still think there’s going to be a market for Kevin Durant to get a — whether it’s a max or near max — contract.”

Wojnarowski added that he would be “shocked” if the Warriors were not still willing to sign Durant to a long-term extension, which makes opting into the final year of his current deal even less likely.

There are obvious concerns about Durant never being the same again, but teams are going to be willing to take the risk. He’s one of the best players in NBA history, and he’ll be 32 at the start of the 2020-21 season. Given the way the Warriors appear to have mishandled his injury situation, they may even feel the need to make it up to Durant by offering him a max extension. Durant’s career may never be the same if he did, indeed, tear his Achilles, but his earnings should be.

Warriors won't have Kevin Durant, Kevon Looney for Game 3 against Raptors OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors will be short-handed for Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday forward Kevon Looney (costal cartilage fracture) will be out for the rest of the series after being hurt in Game 2, while star Kevin Durant (calf), who hasn't played since May 8, will remain out. Warriors star guard Klay Thompson, who left Game 2 in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, is questionable. "If there's a risk, we'd rather give him the next couple days to continue to heal and hopefully have him out there for Game 4," Kerr said. "It's literally day to day.
